Quant Center

We don't want to leave Webster Vienna students hanging when they hit a snag in their math or stats courses, and that's why the Quant Center exists. So, if you need help, you're not alone! From Fall 2019, students seeking mathematics or statistics guidance may approach any of the faculty members listed in the table below during their office hours. Please note that Fall 2020 office hours are still to be determined. The method of instruction may be affected by regulations put in place in response to the current COVID-19 pandemic (e.g. meetings may take place via WebEx). 

What To Expect

You can approach a Quant Center faculty member if you...

… are having trouble understanding a math or statistics assignment.
… are looking for guidance or study tips for an upcoming math or statistics exam.
… have a math or statistics question related to your thesis project or research. (See "Areas of Expertise" in the table below)
